Can you guess when I took this one? Black Friday morning, of course, at the Anderson Mall. 🙂 I never thought getting up that early would be worth it, but worth it smirsh it, it was exciting. And there were deals good enough to encourage me to do it again next year. I didn’t stand in the above line though. These folks were lined up at Belk — waiting for the 5:00 a.m. opening time (and it was ONLY 4:22!). And it was cold. Around the corner J.C. Penny opened at 4 a.m. I hightailed it over there and was enthralled with the sales, the people, the chatter, and of course, the energy of the moment. I actually found what I needed! After leaving J.C. Penny, I drove around and the best line I saw was at Target. Even the police were there. The cars flying around the parking lot were so numerous and the lights were so bright, I could have sworn it was daylight. Best Buy and Old Navy were already open, so I didn’t see those lines…maybe next year. 🙂

  1. WOW Lessie, aren’t you the brave and adventurous one! I’m glad you found deals worth the loss of sleep and exposure to the elements. I’m too much a creature of comfort I suppose, to crawl out of my routine and experience something new. Don’t get me wrong, there was a day when I would have been right there in that line anticipating the opening of those stores with the rest. UH OH, I just figured it out…I’m just too old, that’s all!

    BIG SMILES to you,
